This looks like Stata 9 SMCL. On occasion 
in the past StataCorp have added SMCL elements
in version x that were not documented in the 
manual for version x, but in this instance I believe
Stata 9 is needed to render this as desired. 

Thus your user(s) with version 8.2 can solve this 
only by upgrading to Stata 9. You can solve
this only by back-translating to older SMCL. 

I don't believe version control applies to SMCL
but in any case version control never allows
an earlier Stata to act as a time machine and 
become aware of the features of a later Stata. 
This precognition to limited to senior developers
at StataCorp.
